It was incorporated by Act of Legislature, February 26, 1829. Through the sacrifice and perseverance of those who had faith in the education of women it was founded and through the constant and loving service of its principals, trustees, faculty, students and friends, it has grown through the years. Those who have gone away from the school have established its ideals, and it is the task of those who are now here to carry on those ideals for the sake of those who are to come.

S I was strolling down Washington Street, holding the notch of my Sternum carefully its ideals the highest. But, of course, we, the Class of 1916, not only feel, but know this to be true. In September, 1913, we became the first organized Junior-Middle Class in Abbot, and started in well by winning the Field Day that year. Then came our picnic, and our gay little parties together. These gave us a start toward feeling as if we belonged to one another, so that when, in 1914, we began the year with many new comrades, there was little feeling of diffidence, but a great desire shown for action. It was with this feeling that we took for class motto that of the Class of 1872, "Do Noble Things, Not Dream Them." We won the tennis tournament, ran plays and entertainments, and held a highly successful banquet in the Domestic Science Laboratory, the first purely class affair of the year. Fifty-one of us, besides Miss Bailey and Miss Kelsey, sat about the big open square with the most carefree and festive spirit imagin- able. At least, it was carefree for the "toastless" ones. As to our play, "The Violin Maker of Cremona," of course, we thought it splendid, and perhaps we do deserve a little credit, at least for our intentions, for all, supers and principals alike, did their very best to make the evening a success. The first prom of the year, usually given the Senior-middlers by the Seniors, was, by arrangement of these two classes, given up, and the money given to war relief work. So, when the trustees' dance was held we made up for our loss by having twice as good a time as we had even remotely hoped for. 25 So we worked and played together till the night of the Senior Banquet, when the Class of 1915 formally presented us with the Senior Parlor for our own. Its possession gave us a feeling of pride and responsibility, but at the same time a rather lost sensation at the thought of managing without the Seniors. A new plan was instituted with us, that of electing the officers for the Senior year in June, that there might be no delay in class organization in September. The result has been highly satisfactory, and we hope it will become a custom. The year ended in a rush. We had received the spade and trowel to keep till our tree and ivy should be planted, and had started off on our vacation before we realized that it was June. When September brought us back, we missed much the few of our classmates who failed to return. But new members had joined our ranks, so that forty-seven Seniors filled the Senior parlor at our first class meeting. From the beginning of the year we have assumed control, putting on vaudeville shows, giving in- formal tea-dances to the underclassmen in the Recreation room and taking active part in hockey and tennis. Few big events came before the Christmas holidays, though we spent many happy hours before our open fire, listening to the Victrola, sewing, knitting and being read to. But after the holidays things happened more quickly. Our mid-year exams were upon us, and for three days we toiled with the vision of Intervale ever spurring us on. How happy all forty-five of us were! The snow fell much of the time we were up there in the mountains, but storms held no menace to us. We banished all thought of books and reveled in our play- time. The four days flew as if on wings, and we would have thought the trip a dream had we not num- erous bumps and bruises to prove it a reality. According to custom, we went in to Boston to the annual Abbot Club luncheon, with the distinc- tion of having, as a class, joined the Club before our graduation. 26 The dance which we gave to the Senior-Middlers was a great success, and we all hope to enjoy as much our next when it comes. Many of our thoughts since Christmas have been of the stage, and well they might be. First, the Academic Seniors were busy writing their plays, and then when two were chosen to be given, came the rehearsals. In the second place, we all were deeply interested in the search for a Senior play, finally deciding on Dickens' "Cricket on the Hearth." Our only hope is that the audience spent half as pleas- ant an evening watching it as we did giving it. The Bradford Seniors have come to an informal tea-dance, and we have realized anew how truly delightful and friendly they are. Now the year is nearly over. There remains only the Trustees' dance and our banquet, then the last three days, when we will be so excited, and our career at Abbot will end. We will never forget our school, for from her we received the impulse and training to "Do noble things, not dream them." Agnes Grant, Class Historian. 27 The sun and the sky look down, little tree, And bid you come up to their light. But the earth and your roots hold you fast, little tree, Giving moisture and warmth and might. Like you, we want sky and the sun, little tree, And all of the light that they shed; And our roots, like yours, are deep here, little tree, Where they have been strengthened and fed. The birds will come to your shade, little tree, The children will play all around, And you will give to the world, little tree, The beauty and strength that you've found. The Master has given us life, little tree, Each day sending strength from above That we may give forth in our lives, little tree. His beauty and strength and love. Marjorie F. Freeman. 28 " Ghmtmuoitfl -performance M mmm S I was strolling down Washington Street, holding the notch of my STERNUM carefully, over my base, searching for Ruskinian clouds, my eye was struck by a sign, done somewhat in the Turner style, saying that the show was going on. As I stood gazing, I remembered the last time I had been to the movies I was with Bernice, and so, with tears of "Auld Lang Syne" trickling down my furrowed cheeks, I entered the groined vault of the movies. In the dressing room a deft maid removed my wraps and arranged my hair. She made me think of "Web," but our fastidious could never have sunk so low. I sat quite near the front, and believing it to be for "the greatest good of the greatest number," removed my hat. Below me in the pit sat the Famous Female Orchestra. Something lacking in the face of the pianist and her masterly touch on the keys made me realize that it was "Liz," and playing the trombone was Vera. I leaned forward to speak to them, but the lights went out. The first picture was one of those everlasting Kilton Comedies. I don't see how "Ted" can grind out so many. The heavy comedy part was played by Ruth Moore. The next was a five-reel, "The Great Lover." The leading part was played by "Babe." Imagine! The minor but strong parts were in- 29 terpreted by Emmie Stohn and Myrtle Dean. The gripping drama held me, desiccated lady that I am, quite spellbound. Then came the Pathe Weekly. I followed this carefully, because I thought I might see some of my classmates. First came the review of the battleship, and on one of them whom should I see but "Pill," mending the sailors' clothes and hearing their confidences. "Ship Mother," she was called. Then came a picture of some social function in New York. I looked for "Dard" and found her, and "Lil" was serving tea and smiles to a group of men. How does she do it? And Frances, the fashion leader, was there in a stunning costume. Then came a picture of the Pro-Matrimonial Society (I must join it), and who should be leading the procession but Sylvia, first in all good works, carrying a banner saying, "Eventually, why not now?" And I thought I saw Miss Chickering in the crowd. This picture was interrupted by the manager asking if there was a physician in the house. Who, to my surprise, should step forward but "K"? It is said that she learned her profession by practising on herself. The fascinating reel went on. I saw Eleanor Frary teaching kindergarten in the Noble Institution with "Rufus" Ottman as her star pupil. I saw "Marge," Reform Mayor of Lawrence, giving clean collars to tramps. Then came the fascinating studio of Mildred Jenkins, where she creates those won- derful post impression pictures, and where Ruth Laton, her bachelor companion, writes those thrilling plays that are stirring New York. I saw Mile. Johnson teaching French and German by her new book- 30 less system, and M. Selden, president of the Eugenics Society, working for a healthier and more whole- some race. There was Lillian Hamer, the successor of Pavlowa. The scenes travelled West, and for a time I rested my "rods and cones." When I opened my eyes it was to behold "Dick" coaching the Mansfield Sluggers for the next game. Then was a picture of the University of Arizona, where Charlotte is the - brilliant professor of Physics. During the picture I had been disturbed by incessant talking behind me, and turned to squelch the young and thoughtless, but who should it be but Lois. She immediately began to pour "spice" into my eager ears. She told me that "Vandie" had become quite a college widow, and that "Pug" was now chairman of the Pure Food Committee of Mansfield. She has to sample all the food. Lois says she loves the work. I learned that Rachel Foster had become a great comedienne. I always knew that girl had great undiscovered depths. As for Louise King, she is running a big tea-room in Peabody, while Helene is one of the social leaders in Boston. I didn't catch her married name. The latest "spice" was that Agnes Leslie had just given up her promising musical career to go on Keith's circuit. She wouldn't believe me when I told her that "Gingie" was the advertising agent of the Christian World, and that "Dot" Higgins had married a man who could dance and had money, and was per- fectedly contented leading Bath society. She was surprised to hear that Louise Kimball is delivering a lecture, "Conversation and the Smile," which she illustrates charmingly, and that Charlotte now has three babies and has become one of the leading matrons of Iowa. She hadn't heard that Agnes has become 31 quite a disciple of Amy Lowell and has published some very athletic love sonnets, or that Edith Bancroft is editing an edition of "Johnson's Best Puns," or that M. Allison is a district nurse in Andover, where she is doing a wonderful work. It didn't surprise her to hear that Lucy Squire has been studying Phil- ology, with special emphasis on Etomology, in which she has just received a degree. We were interrupted by a marvelous acrobatic stunt, and were shocked to discover that the troupe contained Elsa, Ruth and Dot. The strong lady was Marion Mellor. An exhibition of modern dancing followed immediately. The skill and ease of the fairy creatures made me realize that such grace could belong to none other than Helen Sands and G. Merrill. Then the lights flashed on and Lois and I made our way out and separated, Lois going to the Touraine for tea and I home to father and the dog. Josephine Walker, Class Prophet. 32 ®n Ulrfi.

" (With apologies to Robert W. Service) We rushed for the train and we caught it. We rolled and tossed like the waves. Was it rest or a lark? — we all sought it, And joined in the fun unafraid. Some wanted to slide and they did it. Came home with 'steen bumps from a fall, Yet somehow the bumps didn't bump you, And somehow the fall wasn't all. Oh, it's just great. (You should see it.) It's the grandest place that we know. From the high, snowy mountains we've seen it To the valleys and rivers below 'Tis said that all love it who see it, And many there are that do come, That's true — and we wouldn't change it For any spot under the sun.

QDfcnm Swirtg The Odeon is a literary society, founded in 1905, and composed of ten girls. These girls are chosen for their literary ability, or their literary appreciation. The Odeon is distinctly an honorary society, and members strive to prove themselves worthy of the honor by producing something worth while every year. The society has occupied itself with writing a serial novel, plays, one of which was given by the members, a study of the stort stories, poems, contemporary poetry and folk-songs. The present Odeon is studying the book of Job and is writing a pageant dealing with the history of Abbot Academy, which, it is hoped, may be given next year. 38 A B O T S c H O o P U B Li I C A T I O N Stye Qltrrle Inarb Literary Editors Esther Kilton, Marjorie Freeman, Agnes Grant, Marion Selden, Josephine Walker Art Editors Editor-in-Chief Business Manager Assistant Lillian Sword, Mildred Jenkins Sylvia Gutterson Eugenia Parker Elizabeth Bacon, 'I 7 Honorary Editors Irene Baush, '17, Dorothy Pillsbury 43 (ttnurattt Snarfo Business Managers Dorothy Dann Ruth Jackson Margaret Perry Literary Editors Agnes Grant Esther Kilton Josephine Walker Marion Selden The Couranl is the school magazine, which is issued in January and June.

Abbnt GItjnBtian Asportation The Abbot Christian Association is a most representative organization to which every resident stu- dent belongs, and which socially influences the life of the whole school, beginning with a welcoming dance for the new girls. The association has charge of many philanthropic interests, ranging from contributions to the Inter- national Institute in Spain, to a Christmas party for some of the poor children of Andover. The Sunday morning classes, conducted by students, to which some nine-tenths of the girls belong, have been devoted to Bible and Mission study. The Sunday night meetings, led by the girls, are of great value to the school. Last year the organization sent to the Northfield Conference delegates whose influence has been felt throughout the entire year. It is hoped that a larger delegation may go this June and bring inspirations and ideas to help the school through the new problems of the coming year. 43 r*«*-v Vv ButT- 1 V|^> «tl c> 1 H <.

Dorothy (P.) if you sneeze agam you will have to leave this meeting. It is most disturbing. And now Miss Bancroft, is she stall meeting those boys from Phillips? That really must go to Faculty Government Every Thursday and Monday did you say? Sometimes oftener? O utra geous! And Mrs. Cramer. — she must not let Mis visit her at ail times of the day. It sets a horrible example to the other teachers. Marjorie reports the same difficulty with Miss Mason. She masts upon spending her study hours in Miss Kekey's room. What was that Josephine? You have trouble makmg her keep your room in order? I'll speak to her about that too. And Miss Checkering lies in bed until 7.25 every nmni|i I am sure I don't see how she gets to breakfast on tame. Miss Dowd has been caught telephoning agam and serving ice cream to the faculty? 71 "HobUs (DjaMj?" ((Honttnupfc) She is a discredit to the anti-humarian league. I must reprove her severely. .And Miss Elliott — I know your trials, Janet, but you must consider her age. She is young yet, ask her table. Miss McLean has not learned to walk yet? That is difficult to correct, but then if she will insist upon breaking ankles I suppose I must give her demerits, although I do so hate to do it. Ten for general unruliness, please. Miss Sherman, I hardly think we ought to judge her, bringing up such a large family is so difficult. Is Miss Aldred still teaching that cat baby talk? It is disgraceful. He won't even recognize the English lan- guage after awhile. Miss King encourages it too. Has she done anything else? Not a thing? Oh well, give her two demerits for "safety first." Miss Stoody. Hasn't she been late to breakfast yet? Well, she must stop this coming around the circle at least ten minutes before breakfast. It startles the girls on the front of the house terribly, and it isn't good for them to have to hurry unnecessarily at that time in the morning. Miss Spalding, — is she still running at all times and in all directions? It may be good physical exercise but it disturbs the atmosphere and quiet. You'll put her on warning too, please. Mile. La Breque has improved, don't you think? I believe she only uses forty words to the second now. Miss Pooke — was she laughing the last time you saw her? Oh, she was in Art class. Well, of course, that's different. Miss Sweeney — did someone interrupt then? You thought she was a girl? Why certainly not. She is a faculty. Looks are often deceiving. What did Mr. Ashton say? Yes I remember the few days in April when it rained every day for about a week, and what about it? Mr. Ashton said we had to worm our way out of the circle. Awk! Too subtle. Miss Bennett and Miss Nichols — well really it is get- ting late and their musical temperaments ought to save them a lot of trouble. I move the meeting be adjourned. Second the motion. Don't one of you tell a thing we have said!" 72 «7 N's for the Neckwear — so round and so sheer, And the style of it changes at least six times a year. E's for the Elite — Oh, lul, lee, lu, la, In those pindling heels that cannot walk far. W's for the Wire that holds out her gown, And the skirt made of tenting that girdles her round. S is for "S'matter — what are those girls at?" Why they're making a smock to match their new hat. T's for the Time spent in fixing her hair, With every new style she seems more debonair. Y's for the Yards that she has in her skirt. They're also made short to keep out of the dirt. L's for the Latest — the latest thing out See how they all rush to see what it's about.

ICiatfti!" "The Only Girl" namely "Sybil" was "Alone at Last" with "Paganini" at "33 Washington Square." "Paganini" had been an "Outcast in the South" for the past month and therefore had not heard the latest "Town Topics." After a real heart to heart "Chin Chin" with his lady love, he was amazed to hear that "Little Lord Fauntleroy," of all people, was preparing to enter the "Secret Service" and go "Under Fire" for "The Greatest Nation" in the world. When they had reached this point in their con- versation in rushed "The Chief" otherwise Fauntleroy, like a "Boomerang" with "The Princess Pat" upon his arm. "Stop, Look, Listen!" he cried, but before he could proceed his two friends were congratulating him on his new position. As soon as he could be heard he went on. "It Pays to Advertise," I see, but I have changed my mind for the better. The service is not for me. Instead, the Princess and I are prepar- ing to seek adventure by sailing together "Around the Map." Of course we hope the weather will be "Fair and Warmer" and that we shall be successful in "Fixing Sister," but of late she has been decidedly "Grumpy." The news was so startling to "Sybil" and "Paganini" that Fauntleroy, with his bride to be, had turned and was stalking toward the door like a very "Cock o' the Walk" before they had time to hurl after them a "Very Good Eddie." 74 -an?* Ma" We have passed the days of a Junior-Mid, And we're Senior-Middles now, And if we study and grind and dig, We'll be Seniors yet, I vow. But the days of English III and IV Are almost left behind, And never again will we knit our brows With the News upon our mind. So after this when the bell is rung, And the dining-room grows still. And Miss Bailey announces a victim's name While the victim feels a chill, We'll all sit back and learn of the war As some poor girl shakes in her shoes, Because we're quite safe from that awful thing The Middlers' fright — The News. J. P.. '17. 75 Setoare! Strang? flnim Mtn With Apologies to 1915 Class Book of Mt. Holyoke College. Chapter I. One cold raw day, on Tuesday, the seventh of March, Copley the "Copdodger" swung off the rear platform of the northbound train and took one deep breath of Andover air. Carelessly he tossed his head from side to side in a vain endeavor to see an American Express sign or a bell hop, but failing he beckoned a jitney and ordered his suitcase delivered at the Inn. Silently he slunk up School Street, the road a sheet of smooth, silver slippenness under his feet. As he neared the circle he stopped, removed an exquisite felt hat and sneered. The sun shone on his yellow locks giving one that pleasing sensation of egg salad. His trousers creased at just the right angle to obscure a protruding knee, put out one midnight when the gang in the gambling house had fled, but what difference did his past life make? His friend, Paul, had asked him to take the charming Madeline Muchmoney to the Abbot Prom and he meant to do it. Marry her? Yes! And then money, money, how he needed money. He laughed gloatingly, shoved his hat around his ears and strode manfully into the circle. With a mystifying quickness of penetration he strode straight for Draper Hall, but his face wore a perplexed frown. He gazed inquiringly at one entrance and then the other. Finally he stopped half way between and tossed his nickel — heads, the right entrance facing north. Suddenly the maid who had been unobtrusively tying her snowshoe looked up and held out her arms. "Copley," she cried, stepped on her snowshoe and fell gracefully into a snowbank. "Plaza," he hissed, "so you are here," and he sprang to the rescue. As he righted her he whispered warningly, "I am here to meet Madeline Muchmoney. She must be mine and you shall not interfere!" He laughed and leered and little molecules of ozone froze around his lips as Plaza snowshoed sobbingly toward the back of the building. 76 iBpuiarr ! Strang? Prom iHrn ( (Euntinupo I Chapter II. That night the prom. The gym was a vision of fairyland. Its Japanese lanterns glowing, the cozy corners beckoning and those yards and yards of various colored tulle. To be sure the girls wore those but they added to the color. But to whom were all eyes turned? To that simple sedate maiden in the corner. The one with the blue-black hair, the color of which quite rivaled the atmosphere of one's room when one bangs one's toes against a chair in a vain attempt to find one's shoes at the sound of the fire bell. And her eyes — ah! That soft deep brown of Andover mud and how radiant they were as she tightly clasped the armful of magnolias that Copley had sent her. Yes, he was wonderful and he had asked her — she could hardly believe it, on such short notice, too. But yes, she was to marry him to-night, below the auto waits. Oh ! This was their dance and now, the escape. Silently they slid through the sliding doors and they were on the circle in the dark of night. Chapter III. "Is that you, dearest?" Copley stopped his restless pacing as he looked up the fire escape and held out his hand to aid the descent. But who is this gliding stealthily around the corner. It is — it is — oh, I see you know already. Plaza the Sob Specialist. Her voice broke the stillness of the night. "Copley, I loved you, yes, but this, — oh, not this. Madeline has been like a sister to me and you shall not ruin her life. Escape while there is yet time, for I have Mr. Clinton, Mr. Dearborn and Charlie coming with a rescue party. With a howl of despair the villain headed for the Shawsheen. Plaza's hand crept to her throat and every nerve strained with emotion. At last the splash as he struck the water! And Plaza fell in a sobbing heap at the foot of the fire escape. 77 THE tMD. >.Coit. Engravings by Howard-Wesson Co., Worcester Printed by Harrlgan Press, Worcester.
